Blight On The Horizon?

This is the southeast view from the beautiful Magheramore Beach showing four offshore wind turbines on the horizon.  Blight or not, the Arklow Bank Wind Park is located on a shallow sandbank some 10 kilometres off the coast of Arklow, Co Wicklow and consists of 7 GE Energy 3.6 megawatt turbines.  Obviously visible on all but the dreariest of days, this is the only offshore windfarm of it's kind, so far, along the east coast.  I wonder what the tourists think?
